These designs are 1 or 2 color designs. I used 2 shades of the same color – purples, blues, pinks. I used the lighter color first and the darker shade second. The second color is basically an outline and some details of the overall design. It gives depth to the satin stitches of the first color/shade.
Although the same artwork was used for each size, they are digitized differently from each other.
This is the first of a series of designs like this I call ‘Collectibles’ that you can collect as they are posted and use them separately or together to create any projects your imagination can come up with. I’m using the smaller ones on the corners of dinner napkins. The larger ones can be on the side of placemats. My plan is of course quilt blocks and pillow tops or table covers. I can’t make up my mind – smiles!
Thought I’d share this with y’all, while I iron out a few details on my next embroidery design release. If you’ve been collecting designs, from me or anyone else, without a clue what you were going to do with them, then be prepared to be schooled on how to take embroidery beyond the hoop.
Since starting down this road, I’ve encouraged folks to share with their projects, as it encourages me to know that my efforts are helping inspire your creativity. Sometimes, I’m pleasantly surprised and every so often I’m blown away. Kathi’s & Sandi’s quilt project is definitely in the latter category. If you’s like to learn more about their machine embroidered quilt project and it’s amazing journey, then read more here.
